I don't like you but I love you
Seems that I'm always thinking of you
Oh, you treat me badly
I love you madly

You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me, baby

I don't want you but I need you
Don't want to kiss you but I need to
Oh, you do me wrong now
My love is strong now

You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me, baby

I love you and all I want you to do
Is just hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me
Tighter

I want to leave you don't want to stay here
Don't want to spend another day here
Oh, I want to split now
I can quit now

You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me, baby

I love you and all I want you to do
Is just please, squeeze, hold me, hold me

You really got a hold on me
I said you really got a hold on me
You know you really got a hold on me
You know you really got a hold on me
I said you really got a hold on me
You know you really got a hold on me
